I've been having some great evenings with my friends and family in town. Christmas came today and deposited two things: food and gifts. My family must have gone on an incredible goose chase to find these things. I ended up getting mostly all stuff to make life more fun on the water: a copy of the current atlas for the area, a trick inflatable PFD and a deck light for being on the water after dark. Today was one of the most chill experiences of the year and it's left me with a huge grin for ear to ear.

Warm wishes to everyone for a great 2009. Can't wait for some of those nice weather patterns to roll on through soon. :)
